Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
When NVP does not improve

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-11-30

Question:
What happens when diclectin doesnt work. I've been on diclectin for about a few weeks and I'm still experiencing severe nausea, vomitting and I'm continuing to lose weight. I've got a scheduled appt with my doctor, but in the meantime, is there any alternative?

Answer:
If your NVP has not improved despite taking Diclectin, you may need to take a higher dose. Women have safely taken 8 tab/day. Please phone our toll free line at 1-800-436-8477 for more information.
